I just received my lestovki from Andrej and Natalia. What beautiful literally prayer-filled workmanship. May God prosper the works of their hands as they spread the blessing of Divyeevo. Holy Wonderworker Seraphim, pray to God for us!

Do not bow to the ground before such a sinful and unworthy priest as myself! Rather help me to rise up by your holy prayers. I, in turn, will not fail to pray for you, my son Alex!

Bless Father!

PLEASE do not say I am holy! If you don't believe me, ask the Administrator here, or Irish Melkite, or Alice or ... smile

I am very gratified that you found your contact with Diveyevo spiritually uplifting.

To be in contact with the Saints of Diveyevo through the Lestovka and the soil/wood from the canavka around Diveyevo as per St Seraphim's directives is truly "heaven on earth."

It is God and His Most Holy Mother Who have brought you into this communion with Diveyevo. They, and St Seraphim of Sarov, St Seraphim Zvezdinsky, the Holy Abbess St Alexandra and the other Holy Saints of Diveyevo are blessing you and guiding you!

What a blessing that truly is!!

Kissing your right hand, I again implore your blessing, Alex

Dear Jeff,

The translation is: May the All-Merciful Lord and our God Jesus Christ bless you!

To anyone who's ordered from Diveyevo, do the folks who work there read English? I can google-translate the website but I want to make sure I don't screw anything up.

They have a working knowledge of English. The couple in charge of orders there are Ukrainian with a great devotion to Our Lady Joy of all Joys, St Seraphim of Sarov and All Saints of Diveyevo (they sell small, plastic-style medals of all saints of Diveyevo and of St Seraphim to which is attached a small piece of the Holy Canal which encircles Diveyevo - you should get one wink ).
